gebs It's fuzzy, spacey, and groovy, with a distinctive flow from start to finish. Driven by a fat bass and sharp vocals, the 43-minute runtime flies by like a comet. Favorite track: The Cosmic Pilgrim.

VIN Bloody hell! Another superb album from this crew. The ante has been upped. They go from strength to strength. I'd love to see them play live. Favorite track: Ignition/Space Cruiser.

Bluebeard the Pagan Put away your bongs and 'shrooms. You wont need them.

Hints of Tool & Golden Earring mix with amazing riffs, earworm licks, perfectly timed tempo and mood switches, and superb vocals and storytelling combine to catapult the listener into an epic rollercoaster ride of a trip. Damn. Favorite track: Ignition/Space Cruiser.

ALSO AVAILABLE AT ripplemusic.bandcamp.com/album/hymn-of-the-cosmic-man

Fire Down Below's second album

"More expansive than the first one, it still holds all those key elements we loved so much from their first one. That stoner trucking, that speedy delivery of riffs and the slow building pummeling of the drummer. Perhaps the biggest difference is the feel of the entire record, this feels like one gigantic beast, an adventure that needs to be explored on a whole. While their debut felt like a kick ass collection of amazing tracks. Slowly, the album takes you along on the quest through that foreign wasteland becoming atmospheric one moment, oppressive the next and gritty and wild the following. Hymn Of The Cosmic Man has everything you need to get you through the day! The week! The month! The year! One hell of a follow-up!"
